The draw, regardless of where I cut on the cap, was on the tighter end. Not a big deal by any means, but a notable one.
Knowing the release schedule of the lancero format we’d come to expect from Cubariqueño, this is no doubt a cigar geek’s wet dream. But is it worthy? If you are a die hard lancero fan, then yes, it is. For me, the cigar had a bouquet of pleasant notes that are at times masked by a bit too much char. But within my recollection, I don’t believe there are too many lanceros utilizing Mexican San Andrés Maduro. For the uniqueness factor, it is well worth picking some up to try. The char may be a function of it’s youth, but of course only time can tell. This will be a prime candidate for another review with half a year to a year rest. “Lancero? Approved!”
